Canada Post issued five stamps on Jan. 24, depicting six female athletes competing for that nation in the Winter Olympics.

The athletes are Sharon and Shirley Firth, Sonja Gaudet, Danielle Goyette, Nancy Greene and Clara Hughes.

These stamps were issued in a self-adhesive booklet pane of 10, and a water-activated gum souvenir sheet of five at the first-class permanent rate.
